While Oregon gold miners shouldered the cost of the litigation all the way through the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, it has been an industry-wide effort to get the Petition to the U.S. Supreme Court drafted, finalized and submitted. We believe that the existing High Court will support mining rights on the federal lands. The challenge is to get the U.S. Supreme Court to review Bohmker. After 9+ years of painful and expensive litigation, this is the industry’s final ongoing attempt through litigation to win our mining rights back. The final Decision should affect mining rights across the west.
We have put together an Action Alert link that includes a sample letter which can be cut and pasted into a letter of your own – or you can just add in the correct date at the top, your name and address at the bottom, an original signature; and mail the letter to Mr. Trump. It would be very helpful if you copy your final letter and send it to each of the officials listed at the bottom of the letter, especially the Solicitor General.
The Action Alert can be found inside our February Newsletter along with other important news right here:
This is, more or less, the end of the line for the foreseeable future, you guys. It is also the best opportunity we have ever had to finally win our rights back once and for all! A positive outcome with the U.S. Supreme Court will turn the entire playing field upside down and hopefully get anti-mining State officials out of the way of our efforts to help make America great by providing the basic building blocks which are the foundation of a strong economy and individual freedom. Thank you in advance for all of you who will join with us in this effort!
